Destiny's Child ~ This Is The Remix
This Is the Remix shows just why Destiny's Child is such a powerhouse: they have wicked songs that can survive almost any treatment. Not that the selections, culled from the group's three preceding albums, are mishandled here. The Neptunes aren't quite at the top of their game on "Emotion," but Timbaland's sexy remix of "Say My Name" is one of the best things he's done--and that's saying a lot. Despite too many rap interludes, the CD ends on a high note with feverish Maurice Joshua mixes of "Jumpin', Jumpin'," "Bills, Bills, Bills," and "So Good" that are simply fantastic dance-floor burners. The one misstep is the tucked-away "Heard a Word," a track from Michelle Williams's solo album. Still, this is state-of-the-art mainstream R&B designed to tide fans over until the triumvirate goes back to the studio together. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

Beyoncé, Michelle and Kelly seem to be everywhere these days - the mere reference of their names seems to spark a conversation. They are in demand.
However, they haven't released a substantial full-length player since "Survivor" - and they won't for a while since each member is pursuing a solo career currently. The Christmas album wasn't much of a pleaser and this album is a rehashing of past work of some of today's hottest remixers.
"This Is The Remix" starts with "No, No, No Part 2," which is incidentally a remix of a song that was already remixed by Wyclef Jean on their first album. For some reason this extended version falls flat and fails to capture the spice of the original remix.
Beat gods The Neptunes appear on this album on the remix of "Emotion" - originally a ballad, now a bob-your-head tune - a great collaboration with a stronger vocal arrangement than the original.
Unlike many remix albums, this one is almost fully made of R&B remixes, including the Rockwilder remix of "Bootylicious" featuring the queen of remix Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliot.
Timbaland makes an appearance with his version of the delicious "Say My Name" - even when the original is amazing - this is a different take on a great song.
"Nasty Girl," the highlight track from Destiny's Child's "Survivor," was surprisingly never released as a single. It is reinvented as a less-aggressive Azza Nu Soul Mix.Read more ›
In essence, this should have created a fantastic record. Unfortunately, a couple of VERY dodgy remix choices here and there keep this from being a 5-star release. Firstly, the positives. The Neptunes reworking of 'Emotions' turns it into an uptempo pop/R'n'B jam without destroying the sentiment of the tune, whilst Missy Elliot and Rockwilder turn 'Bootylicious' into a sizzling ode to ... well... shaking your booty. 'No No No (Part II)' is as fantastic as it was back in 1997, and the Refugee Camp mix of 'Bug-A-Boo' is loud and brash with dischordant backing vocals. Sublime, but not for the faint hearted fans of the bubbly original! The Maurice disco mix trilogy at the end of the record ('Jumpin' Jumpin'' / 'Bills Bills Bills' / 'So Good') is an obvious highlight, each track seamlessly seguing into the next to make for 12 minutes of dancefloor ecstasy.
On the flipside, there are some rather major miscalculations. The Timbaland mix of 'Say My Name' is chilled and pleasant, but almost completely unrecognisable from the original song of the same name. Personally, I would have much preferred the Digital Black 'n' Groove Mix or any of the other commercial mixes of this fabulous tune.Read more ›
No no no Part II (Extended version) : This one is just longer than the single version. I think it's better that way.
Emotion (The Neptunes remix): This song is new recorded and they added a beat. It's nice but the original version is better.
Bootylicious (Rockwilder remix): This song is also new recorded. It's slower now. But the song loses drive and charm.
Say my name (Timbaland remix) This is a Hip hop song. It's not similar to the original version.
Bug a boo (Refuggee camp remix feat. Wyclef Jean): That's interesting. With a new beat, raps and more.
Dot (E-Poppe mix) : I don't like the song and I don't like the remix.
Survivor (remix feat. Da brat): It's the original with a rap.
Independent women Part II: Also nice but Part I is better.
Nasty girl:(Maurice's new soul radio edit): This song is just with a new Dancebeat.
Jumpin Jumpin (Remix feat. JD, Da brat & Lil Bow Wow): The first part is with raps and then the DC-Megamix starts.
Bills bills bills (Maurice's x-clusive livegig mix) A clubmix.
So good (Maurice's nu soul mix): Again a clubmix. They are quite boring.
Head a word: The Gospelsong is taken from Michelle's soloalbum.

This is a marketing gimmick to get the hard earned dollars out of a music lovers pocket. None of the remixes made the song any better, in my opinion. Read morePublished on Aug. 16 2002
A very good attempt at a remix album, though not as edgey, or tight as JLo. This is another stunner, but not always as some of the tracks are let down. First the bad. Read morePublished on July 31 2002
